The Real Pod team assemble in the boardroom of dreams to talk reality TV and real life in New Zealand, including the return of MKRNZ, Art and Matilda’s new cats and TVNZ’s new season announcements.
This week on The Real Pod, worlds collide as Lena Dunham gets onboard with The Real Housewives of Auckland, Max Key does a dab on the news, and Jane recalls sharing a makeup room with news stalwart Peter Williams. Art and Matilda have charming new cats with scary human names and Johnny Depp-lookalike Teal has unsurprisingly proven himself to be one of the best parts of MKRNZ.
There’s also a horrifying encounter with a fart on a train, buzz around an upcoming Kiwi Christmas film, and a petition to get Colin Mathura-Jeffree to TVNZ for Project Runway NZ 2018. It’s The Real Pod, and it’s real whether you like it or not.
